Tooning Out The News
- 2 Seasons
From the minds behind The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and Our Cartoon President, comes Tooning Out The News - an animated variety news series, hosted by larger-than-life anchors. The show is structured as a fictional newscast, with animated anchors and reporters presenting satirical takes on current events. The cartoon segments are similar to animated sketches that were originally produced for Colbert's show and for the series Our Cartoon President. Production on the series was delayed and significantly altered by the coronavirus pandemic. The animation technique originally used involved motion capture technology to record the movements of actual actors. After the pandemic forced the animation staff to work remotely, the technique was changed to simpler one that merely uses commercially available animation software.
